This ones going to be short and sweet. I have been knee deep in Lego's and Nerf guns for two days... TWO!
When we decided to build Justin the loft bed, we didn't take into consideration that were were going to loose the storage space under his bed. Originally, he had a draw trundle under there, but as he got older and became a collector of every building toy imaginable... we decided to ditch the trundle and use the space for buckets 'o' toys.
This worked well.
So when the loft bed came along... we had no where to put the buckets and they have been a big stacked mess ever since. This is what happens when you don't think things all the way through.
Lesson 1... it is a pain in the ass to check blood in the middle of the night when you have to climb a step ladder.
Lesson 2... know what your going to do with the shit under the bed first.
Anywho... this has been a topic in our house for some time and Anthony decided that "we" were going to fix it this weekend.
Saturday morning we headed out to Ikea for some form of shelving unit. I love Ikea
We picked up a shelf/bookcase type thing that could house 8 bins. We also grabbed 8 bins in case the ones we already had didn't fit(good thing... we ended up needing them).
When we got home we emptied EVERYTHING but the furniture out of Justin's room.
Yes, that IS his crap all over the table.
Yes, that IS his tree
Yes, that IS him sitting in the middle of the mess p-l-a-y-i-n-g!
No, that is NOT all of it!!!
|Justin's new shelf minus the bins.|
I still have a crap load of stuff in my living room and dining room and I can hear the Lego's stirring around in there. I think I'm starting to get a twitch.
